An easement is defined by Oregon statute as a non-possessory interest in the land of another person that entitles the holders of an interest in the easement to a private right of way, embodying the right to pass across another's land (105.170). The holders of an interest in any easement are required to maintain the easement in repair (105.175). Certain types of easements, such as solar energy easements and wind energy easements have specific recording guidelines, which are given in sections 105.895 and 105.910 of the Oregon Revised Statutes.

An instrument creating an easement that is executed by the person from whom the interest is intended to pass, and acknowledged or proved in the manner provided for the acknowledgment of conveyances, may be indexed and recorded in the records of deeds of real property in the county where the property is located (93.710). An easement deed can be acknowledged before any judge of the Supreme Court, circuit judge, county judge, justice of the peace, or notary public within the state of Oregon. A seal of the grantor, corporate or otherwise, is not required (93.410). A county clerk may refuse to record an easement deed if it does not contain the original signature of the person executing the instrument and the original signature of the officer before whom acknowledgments were made (93.804).

An easement deed should be recorded in the real property records in the county where the property subject to the easement is located. If the easement is not recorded, this will not affect the enforceability of the agreement among the parties thereto and any other person with actual notice of the agreement (105.175).

The process was easy going. The process is one thing, the results another. I have attempting to resolve this matter, of claiming sole ownership of the property for several YEARS. I lost my Bride of 65 years in 2015. A lawyer I hired failed in his attempt, so I'm waiting to see the actual results.
I also have two parcels in New Mexico under the same situation, so if this is successful, I'll gladly be back. Thank You so very much. Don Martin

Well, we are 10 days from leaving the country for months and needed to notarize and record deed changes to our rental properties. We worried about USPS, UPS, DHL, etc. and hardcopies in the County's bureaucrats' hands. Soooo, we learned of Deeds.com from the County web site via one of the bulk digital recorders telling me about Deeds.com. Hit their site, read their instructions, concluded my tiny brain and decrepit abilities could handle the chore. WITHIN AN HOUR OF UPLOADING EVERYTHING INCLUDING C.C. FOR PMT IT WAS RECORDED AND I printed out copies. WORTH the $$ in speed, convenience and PEACE of mind. Pardon the loud trumpeting.

I never could even think to solve an important issue involving even overseas individuals without even a lawyer within 24 h. This service works for real and I'll keep using it from now for any future needs, referring to and proposing it as a legitimate, trusted real Optimus service. I'm extremely satisfied and being a Public Official myself I got to say that these guys have really impressed me!
